PET Scan Adventure from Jo's Country Junction

Thursday was PET scan day for me.  Remember the insurance preauthorization thing that was going to take until October 2nd.  Well the clinic called me the next day and said I was approved.  This is one of the many reasons it’s important to advocate for yourself.  If I hadn’t I would be waiting until then for this to get moving along.  In reality, it was approved in less than 24 hours.

The family has been juggling schedules to try to help out but with one member of the team, Kramer, gone, it’s a little bit harder.  Kelli ...

My Weekend from Jo's Country Junction

I had a fabulous weekend.  When I was getting groceries on Saturday the guy who was taking my groceries out asked, “Do you have plans for the weekend?”  The tone he had was a little bit of an assumption of sadness if I didn’t.  I happily said “NO…No plans at all and I couldn’t be happier!”  I so needed a no plans weekend….some time to catch up do a little on nothing..and a little of something all in a weekend.  I had no commitments to anyone or anything.  In my busy life a day or ...

Saturday with Kelli and Georgia from Jo's Country Junction

On Saturday I had nothing that I had to do.  None of our kids were at our house.  I woke up and for the most part it felt like Saturdays of my past…a whole do to do my choosing.  I can’t tell you the last day I had like that.  It felt like a luxury.

There was an auction I could go to….there was a house I could clean…there was yard work I could do…there were blog posts I could write.  But what did I do?  I called Kelli and asked if she had some ...

A Kramer Family Update from Jo's Country Junction

Here’s the Kramer update
Monday-I took off childcare and drove Kramer to his appointment. Chemo and radiation all went well.  He was feeling good.

Tuesday-Our friend drove to radiation.  He went to working the morning for a few hours.  He has an oxygen pack.  It had four hours of charge to it.  I’m thankful for only 4 hours as it makes it hard for him to work any longer than that.  We started oxygen overnight now too as he has been waking up with headaches.

The rest of the week he has some farmer friends driving ...

Weekend with the Kramers from Jo's Country Junction

We had quite the weekend around here….

Kayla was here Friday and left in the early morning of Saturday.  She got in some good family time before she left.

She needed an auntie picture with Georgia. Aww.  Sweet.


(Notice the pictures in the background?  Kayla deboned shirts for me!!!  I love her!!)

Friday night was fajita night.  Notice each of the girls have a planner.  We’re trying to find days for baby showers and family day…and every other thing.  Oh my.


While we were doing that, a little cousin love was happening.  Aren’t they cute??


Georgia on ...

Meeting Georgia Grace from Jo's Country Junction

Well the day was a little crazy yesterday.  Kramer had his set back episode at the doctor’s…I had the childcare kids and Carver.  Kalissa had Gannon and was taking care of Kramer.  Kelli was at the hospital with new baby Georgia Grace.

Well the stars aligned and I was able to get to the hospital to see Kelli.  I had Carver with me.  Kalissa and Kramer stopped on their way through when driving home.

We knew Kramer wasn’t feeling the best so it was a quick stop.  Only long enough for a photo op.

Sadly we were ...

Saturday Day, Sewing Day! from Jo's Country Junction

Kelli came home for a sewing day….or hang out day or whatever we made of it day.

Our first order of business was to trim up the quilt we are working on that Carla (of Longarm Quilting Inspirations) quilted for us.  Carla does great work and I love it!!


Above is our “keeping it real photo”.  While we were trying to trim, Carver was playing fetch with Puppycat, Kelli’s beagle.  They would run and tear across the quilt.  Kelli and I just trimmed away.

Here’s our smiling happy version.
After this we took more pictures of the ...

STOP the Presses: We have news!!! from Jo's Country Junction

I have news of the VERY happiest kind.  Well actually Kelli and I have news.  It’s Kelli’s news but I’m sharing it.

Kelli carved pumpkins a little early this year.  Pumpkin on the far left…Jason’s with a tractor.  Pumpkin on the far right…a paw print for their dog Puppycat.  The pumpkin in the middle.  Kelli’s.  Notice the baby pumpkin inside that says March 2019!!

Yes, you guessed it.  Kelli and Jason are expecting.  We are absolutely thrilled.  It took a few trips to the doctor, a few meds and lots of prayers but ...
